Matthew 5:17-20 and Heidlberg Catechism 114-115
‘Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfil them. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practises and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.
Righteous God, your law is goo, but even my best performance only begins to live out its truths. I eagerly look to Jesus, who is my righteousness. I set my heart on His approving love, rest in His forgiveness of my failure and rely on the renewing grace of the Holy Spirit to live out your holy law. Amen
